The address is on the theme of engineers and communications tracing how the British public's perception of engineering has changed since World War 2. These changes have occurred because engineers have felt concern about how society values their contribution and have taken steps to change the situation. The public has become more aware of what engineering is all about and that engineers have, with varying degrees of success, impressed socity with the true nature, responsibility and excitement of their work.
